Grid computing deals with large scale resource sharing and can be exploited to carry out storage and compute intensive tasks which are otherwise not practical to be executed on a single system. Video encoding is a lengthy, CPU intensive task, involving the conversion of video media from one format to another. Video files can be easily broken down into smaller work-units. This factor makes the distribution and execution of video encoding processes viable on grid. In this paper, the authors have made an attempt to design, implement and evaluate a grid environment for DV to mpeg4 video conversion.
